Beginning My Restoration project 2000 205v

So I thought I'd start my thread with a few before photos and I will telling the story and updates as we go along. I picked up this find last week just waiting on the title. The cleaning and upholstery will be getting done shortly (Hopefully starting this week) I plan on doing a few mods to it as well. Stay tuned for more...

Always sad to see a nice boat deteriorate to this state. Thanks for bringing her back!

Wow, you're going to need a lot of magic erasers!

Actually gelcoat in the one pic looks pretty good. New carpet and new interior looks like most of your problem. Does it run? Does it steer? Looks like salt water use so I'd get a steering cable and maybe eliminate the MDC box, install new gauges too. I think there is a thread on that.

Glad she's getting a second chance.......please bit** slap the previous owner for us!

Good luck mate. Looking forward to following this project. Let me know if you find a source for the MC grip tape on the trailer

We just refurbished our trailer and we used this stuff:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Stick-on-Vin...684508?vxp=mtr

It looks just like the original stuff, and it was really easy to work with. We just cut it to size cause it came in a huge sheet. It's thin textured rubber, not aggressive like grip tape.

Congrats on your acquisition! Looks like you have your work cut out ahead of you, but that's a very good starting point! Keep the progress pics coming!

What do you guys think as far as interior colors. The green and tan on the exterior is a little bit of an out dated color scheme. I was thinking about something like this:
